MMA – UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman is reportedly up for a rise to middleweight.
Facing Gilbert Burns in UFC 258, Kamaru Usman defended his welterweight belt for a third time. At 33, the Nigerian Nightmare has a thirteenth consecutive file victory for the class. While his subsequent opponent seems to be Jorge Masvidal, Usman can be stated to be ready to go to the middleweights, however not beneath any circumstances (by way of ESPN).
“Absolutely, if Izzy is ready to go upstairs. Well, he is going up proper now. But, if he is prepared to give up that middleweight belt and say, ‘I do not need something to do with this division anymore,’ then completely. I’d completely agree with this concept. “
“But I’d by no means consider the concept of combating with Izzy. It’s simply not one thing that pursuits me. I’ve stated it over and over. I desire there to be two Africans with belts fairly than one African with two belts. And , after March (Jan Blachowicz vs. Israel Adesanya, Stipe Miocic vs. Francis Ngannou 2 – editor’s notice), there can be three Africans with a complete of 4 belts. It’s a good time to be African. “
